"Pleasant surprise"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Didn’t know anything about this film (except the trailer of it), nor the series of books on which it’s based (-). Being a sci-fi/fantasy fan , The pure spectacle and originality of it’s premise is what attracted me to this. The story could have explained/explored the 'how/why -’ of it a little more in my opinion – things seemed a bit rushed in this area, especially regarding the 'permanent sanctuary city’ built behind the wall as opposed to the destructive roaming ones ! The extras on the DVD was worthwhile watching in getting a better understanding of this world. It would have benefited from being developed/made into a couple of films or even a trilogy.

"Good story line"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Good story line , but for me not enough action regarding big cities eating smaller cities.


Some scars never heal.

In a post-apocalyptic world where cities ride on wheels and consume each other to survive, two people meet in London and try to stop a conspiracy. A mysterious young woman, Hester Shaw, emerges as the only one who can stop a giant, predator city on wheels devouring everything in its path. Feral, and fiercely driven by the memory of her mother, Hester joins forces with Tom Natsworthy, an outcast from London, along with Anna Fang, a dangerous outlaw with a bounty on her head.
